About the role
Working as a Relationships Executive, you’ll be taking up a key position in our growing team, helping us support schools using our products and providing an excellent end to end customer experience. With great oversight of what’s going on in Sparx and in the classroom, you’ll be the touch point between our internal teams and our school stakeholders. You will be focused on offering the best service possible whilst developing and maintaining sustainable long-term relationships with schools.
Sparx is about learning. We work with schools, in schools and for schools because we understand the challenges faced by educators, teachers and students on a day to day basis and we are passionate about finding a way to help.
Empowering educators and motivating young people to improve educational outcomes is our mission - aiming to improve life opportunities for over 5 million learners by 2030 #Ed5M.
For over 7 years we have been investigating how young people learn. We have gathered data, listened to teachers and students and overlaid these insights with our own observations, drawing on the expertise of our team. The result is not an off-the-shelf software product - it is an approach to learning. Our unique, blended learning methodology combines traditional teaching methods with sophisticated technology, our own high quality content and unparalleled levels of support.
